P.F. Chang’s China Bistro said yesterday that the company is investigating a report of a possible data breach with credit and debit cards that may have been stolen from its restaurant locations nationwide. The news came from Krebs on Security blogger Brian Krebs, who uncovered previous data breaches at retailers such as Target.
We continue to see stories such as these in the headlines daily, a prominent retail store, financial institution or popular website being hacked. Employee and customer data has been compromised and these businesses are scrambling to close these breaches. Surprisingly, it still seems that many of today’s biggest organizations are stuck in the ‘it won’t happen to us‘ mindset. Unfortunately, once the hack has occurred, it is too late, as the company’s reputation and security infrastructure has proven to be vulnerable.
A layered, adaptive and aggressive security strategy is of the utmost importance. With EdgeWave’s iPrism Web Security and ePrism Email Security Suite, organizations can achieve multi-layered security, with human intelligence, that safeguards their network at each stage of the attack lifecycle.
